Hotel Le Bristol, Paris, France

The location and reasons to visit:

Well, it’s in France, of course. As for reasons to go there, to see the big stack of girders that is named The Eiffel Tower, for one.  Fortunately there are a lot of beautiful buildings, as well. The Louvre is certainly one of them. But, Paris is full of tourists at most times of the year, certainly in May, when I was there. The vision of having a coffee in a quiet cafe overlooking a quite square surrounded by beautiful buildings is just not reality.

Review of the Hotel Le Bristol, Paris, France:

This has to be one of the best hotels in Paris. It is organised with calm efficiency and has the most excellent standard of service.  I had lunch in the gardens a few times, at an average cost of Euros 117 for a salad starter, which had a nice dressing, a piece of fish as a main course, which was very average at best, plus three glasses of Chablis (or was it four?). I dread to think what the cost would be for a meal in the main restaurant.

The room was a Deluxe Junior Suite, upgraded at check-in from a Junior Suite. Hotel rooms in Paris are usually very small, but this room was actually very large, nicely decorated and very quiet.  

This was the only hotel in the world where I’ve heard “Twinkle, twinkle little star’ played on a harp, in the bar one evening.
